In Dakar; the capital city of Senegal; there are many young boys who survive by begging alms from passers by. Africa Imports was founded to help people and communities in Africa. The main way that we do this is by creating and supporting a channel for products made by people in Africa. The profits earned by Africa Imports are also sent back to Africa to help support four orphanages and a day home for street boys. The photo below shows some of the boys in in the day home. You can see more photos of this home; and of the children in the orphanages in Congo; on this page of our website.
